In this essay I want to change the reader’s mind. Many people believe that gun control is a solution to gun violence but that is not the case. Making it hard for people to get guns for self-defense will simply increase the supply of illegal firearms. Many people will find illegal ways of getting firearms and gun violence will simply increase. New York has some of the strictest laws on guns but violence is still high compared to some of the cities with even lose control on guns. It is therefore not true that strict laws would lead to reduced gun laws. In my view ensuring that citizens can obtain hand guns will reduce gun violence.
